5 Sensational Summer Cocktails

Have you been taking advantage of the summer sun and recent change of restrictions with a barbecue, picnic or drinks in the garden? Well if you have and are starting to run low on cocktail or mocktail inspiration, Bach™ Original Flower Remedies has created 3 cocktail and 2 mocktail recipes that’ll keep you refreshed and feeling all the summer holiday vibes without having to go abroad! So, grab your shaker, make sure you’ve got plenty of ice, and it’s time for cocktails!

Cocktails:

Honeysuckle Gin Martini (serves 1)

Though simple to make, this cocktail can transport you to a rooftop bar in NYC in no time and is perfect for a classy evening of jazz, light linens and summer dresses. Shred the mint leaves then grab your shaker, fill it with ice and combine the gin, simple syrup, mint and the juice of one lime. Shake it for 20 seconds, pour it into a martini glass and garnish with a slice of lime. Then, finish it off with two drops of Honeysuckle® essence to help you feel present and enjoy the moment!

  • 40ml dry gin
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 20ml simple syrup (1 cup castor sugar, 1 cup of water and boil for 3 minutes)
  • 5 fresh mint leaves
  • 2 drops Bach™ Original Flower Remedies Honeysuckle

Sunset on the Bach® (serves 1)

If you’ve been dreaming of white sandy beaches and multicoloured sunsets, then this is the cocktail for you. Grab a large glass and fill it halfway with ice (crushed, if you have it). Pour the white rum, Malibu, orange juice and pineapple juice into the glass and stir. Top the drink off with a floater of cranberry juice and dark rum, and garnish with a slice of an orange. Make sure to add two drops of Mimulus® at the end to help you find that summer confidence and excitement.

  • 20ml white rum
  • 10ml Malibu
  • 40ml orange juice
  • 40ml pineapple juice
  • 20ml cranberry juice
  • 10ml dark rum
  • Slice of orange
  • 2 drops Bach™ Original Flower Remedies Mimulus

Water Violet® peach sangria (1 pitcher, serves 8)

While you can’t really go wrong with sangria, we thought we’d mix it up a little by using white wine, adding white peaches and our Water Violet® essence to get you feeling summery, refreshed and encourage you to connect with others. Simply pour the wine, peach schnapps, orange juice and lemonade in an ice-filled pitcher, slice up the oranges, lemons and peaches, add your drops of Water Violet, stir and pour!

  • 1 bottle (750ml) white wine
  • 50ml peach schnapps
  • 250ml orange juice
  • 250ml lemonade
  • 2 oranges

Mocktails:

Cherry Plum® Nojito (serves 2)

Fresh, zingy, minty and fruity – it’s got everything you need for a relaxing summer’s day! Place 1 large handful of crushed ice, your mint leaves, cherries, lime juice, apple juice, and cordial in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into two glasses and top off with 40ml of soda water in each glass. Garnish with mint leaves, a wedge of lime and 2 drops of Cherry Plum® in each glass to help you relax and enjoy your downtime.

  • 80ml soda water
  • 60ml apple juice

Here’s a light, refreshing mocktail using our Wild Rose® essence, which can help you get into the holiday spirit if you’ve been feeling a little unenthusiastic recently. Fill a wine glass with 3-4 ice cubes, add your Rose lemonade, all your juices, stir and top with 2 drops of Wild Rose essence.

  • 80ml rose lemonade (substitute for 10ml rose syrup and 70ml lemonade if you can’t find rose lemonade in store)
